Ah, those were the days!

I picked up a TRS-80 Color II in 1995 or so, just for fun. Still pull it out occasionally.

1996–2000
I don't think I ever used TI-BASIC outside of high school when I programmed on both a TI-82 and later a TI-89.

Used it a lot in college, haven't touched it since.

Most fun I've ever had. As evidence, this program will take a number entered in binary in the switch register and return the square of that number in the accumulator (also in binary): 111011000001 011010010100 011010010011 111100000100 111101101000 101010010000 111000100001 011010010101 001010010011 001010010100 011010010011 111000000101 001010010100 111010010100 010010010101 101010001000 111010000000 001010010011 111100000010 000000000000 000000000000 000000000000

Discovered Python in college; now I use it every day at work.

Starting using TeX with LaTeX for my college papers. Love it.

2003–
Started out with Scheme in college, continuing through the present with mostly Elisp.
2003–
A few basic OS X apps and an abortive attempt at an iPhone app. I just don't have the patience for memory management anymore!
